My name is Ellinor Orton, and I'm a tailor living and working in Norfolk, England.
I come from a long line of tailors and seamstresses and have been making handmade clothes for over ten years now. I’ve always loved designing and making clothes and costumes and when I got into live role-play I began to make my own costumes based on what I could dream up. Pretty soon I had to expand my skill set to allow me to make what I was designing.
Getting into re-enactment meant a new skill set again; I had to research my costumes to use authentic designs, colours and fabrics, and all re-enactment costume I make is hand-finished.
More recently I've been getting into aspects of cosplay too, which involves almost as much research as re-enactment but at least the sources are more readily available!
